Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As a fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenally celebrated stage musical, The Phantom of the Opera, I’ve wanted to recreate the gothic and snow covered cemetery of Perros-Guirec for some time. Now, with Nightlife’s ability to create community graveyards, and with this being the season of ghosts and goblins, I thought it was only fitting.

The graveyard occupies a 3x4-size lot, is to the best of my knowledge, hack-free, and includes a crypt beneath the Daaé mausoleum. Although the screenshots display tombs, various styles of headstones, and snow-covered hibiscuses and bougainvillea, these striking objects/recolors are not included within the lot. Although I highly recommend them, as they lend dramatic ambience to the surroundings, I decided to leave non-Maxis objects out of the lot for those users who would rather not have external objects imported within their game.

- Gromit’s “Versatile Head Stones and Tomb,” NOT included but found here
- Fireflies’ “EP Ready – Snow Covered Hibiscus & babbling bougainvillea” NOT included but found here
- Custom wallpapers, tile and terrain paint were created by me.

*EDIT -- Please DO NOT upload this lot, or any of my other works, to the Exchange and/or any paysites without my consent.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is incredible!

Is there any chance of you uploading the full lot, with all the extras? I sure that if I tried to recreate it myself I'd mess it up.
